Printing Lengths

After a day session learning how to print lengths earlier in the sermester, I was eager to use this newly found knowledge, hense focusing my entire project around printing lengths.
With a positives of my Kingfisher design ready, all that remained was to make 8 screens for this 8 colour print.

Here are a few snaps of the lengths still on the table:
